Life without passie
Yesterday at CHOA went well. We first went to the blood disorders and cancer center for Ian to have more blood work done. My mom held him while the nurse drew blood because I'm a wimp when it comes to needles and such. Then we all went to see Dr. Granger. He was very pleased to see Ian actually wearing the NAM. After some adjustments he was done with us. A nurse measured Ian: 12 lbs., 5 oz. and 23 5/8 inches long. Our boy is growing! He has been having trouble not being able to use the passie. He's gotten used to it helping him fall asleep and now all he has are his fingers. They do the trick sometimes, but they're not always what he wants. The past few days have been a little rough for him. He's been fussier and has become a little hoarse in the process. He's a trooper though.
